Easy Hemp Banana Bread (Gluten Free)

This Hemp Banana Bread is just a little bit decadent through the inclusion of chocolate chips, while the nuttiness of the hemp flour gives it wholesome touch.


Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 70 mins
Difficulty: Medium

INGREDIENTS

3 ripe spotty bananas
1 cup almond meal (almond flour)
1 cup Hemp Flour
½ cup hemp seeds (hearts)
¼ cup raw honey (or maple syrup)
2 eggs (or replace with 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ cup coconut oil (melted)
¼ cup dairy-free chocolate chips

 

*Recipe adapted from Yummly.

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 175C.
  2. In a large bowl, peel and mash bananas until smooth and whisk in your eggs (or applesauce), coconut oil, honey (or maple) and vanilla until combined.
  3. Next, using a sieve, sift in the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Using a spatula, mix the wet and dry ingredients together until well combined.
  5. Fold in the hemp hearts and chocolate chips until evenly distributed and set mixture aside.
  6. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper (or grease 4 mini loaf tins) and slowly pour in the mixture.
  7. Smooth the top with a spatula and bake in the oven for 60-70 min (40 min for mini loafs) or until golden brown and a toothpick or spaghetti stick comes out of the center clean.


*Note: melted coconut oil should be left to cool at room temperature before you add it to the wet ingredients. This prevents it from cooking the eggs in your batter.
